lyrics

I stumble around with vision unsound and words I can feel.
I wake from a dream and that's when I seem to lose something real.
All that's inside is wrapped up and tied, and tagged wrong within.
So it's hard to find the meaning behind these memories of sin.

But there is meaning in some words that fit together in a melody.
Or maybe I'm all wrong - suckered by a song.

Slow down - things are getting out of control.
Hold on - the rock is way ahead of the roll.
Sit back and listen to some "God Only Knows"...
I want hippie with a bit more soul.

Someone once said, "you're better off dead than trying to find
something in life worth looking at twice," well "someone" was blind.
Maybe it's me who's stuck in a tree that's growing too fast
away from a part that's rooted in art too far in the past.

But there's still reason to stack the same exact words in harmony.
A stone you leave unturned, is rock you never learn.
